A poster designed to take your breath away

David_blaine You’re too late to see David Blaine in his watery bubble, trying (and failing) to set a world record for holding one’s breath. But you’re not too late to buy this nice absurd poster celebrating the event. (Click the image to see it in glorious detail.) It features a pair of angels standing on a giant playing card in the desert, using golden sticks to operate a huge golden egg timer, as a guy rows by in a canoe, a stingray floats past, and some other people are doing God knows what in the background next to a couple of white gates. Blaine knows how to sell himself, although you could quibble with the tagline: “Failure means a drowning death.”
